The GBBO Challenge - The Baking Explorer

The GBBO Challenge

When Season 3 of The Great British Bake Off began I had just started my blog and I decided to challenge myself to choose something the GBBO bakers made each week and make it myself. It really helped me expand my baking repertoire and taught me a lot. I would definitely recommend this to anyone watching GBBO and looking to improve their baking! Here are the posts that record what I got up to then and every season since.

After 4 years of this challenge, I have decided not to continue for a 5th year. I have learnt more than I ever imagined and I am so happy with GBBO’s involvement in my baking journey. The learning will continue as I continue to bake for this blog, and I will always be a huge GBBO fan!
